Another Three Points
Per usual, Real Madrid suffered until they didn’t. A tepid first half suddenly became frantic in the second half as Asensio scored a classic golazo, Vini changed his boots, Paulista lost his mind, and Ceballos dominated the midfield.

The injury trend sadly continued. Militao, Benzema, and Kroos were subbed with potential knocks. It appears that the Benzema and Kroos subs were precautionary, but Militao’s is something of concern that we will need to continue monitoring throughout the weekend.
